Starbucks has it’s loyal followers and loyal haters. The topic of the mega brand Starbucks is more than what I want to discuss here but I do want to point out that the “Vision of the Future” is happening in Amsterdam at the site of an old bank. Yup, Starbucks has opened a cafe/coffee lab that fits right into the ambiance and style of Amsterdam without feeling like an American coffee house abroad. Features such as an in-house bakery, environmentally friendly benches & stools constructed from re-purposed Dutch oak, tons of wood and glass and the opportunity to sample coffees not available anywhere else in the world.
